Annual Lists

Script Pipeline

Since 1999, Script Pipeline alumni have sold over $7 million in spec scripts to studios. Many writers have received representation and the organization also reviews and develops additional material from finalists years after they take part.

New entrants to its screenwriting contest can request a call with an exec to answer industry questions. Additionally, there’s production or co-financing for writers looking to get their micro or low budget films made.

Winner Evan Daugherty’s script Shrapnel was made into the 2013 Robert De Niro-starring feature Killing Season. He sold Snow White and the Huntsman to Universal as one of the biggest spec sales in recent history. Then there’s Tripper Clancy, whose first studio feature Stuber, starring Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista and produced by Fox, will be released this year. Finalist Jennifer Goldson had two features produced, indie rom-com On the Menu and TV movie Snatched.

Senior Executive Matt Joseph Misetich says over 20 other projects from recent winners and finalists are in development and production.

“Getting our writers recognized by the industry is a priority,” he says. To us, supporting writers you believe in means supporting them forever.”
